iPad Apps for Math Intervention

iPad Apps for Math Intervention | Special Education and Inclusion | Scoop.it

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."

The Autism Paradox

The Autism Paradox | Special Education and Inclusion | Scoop.it

A friend recently shared this with me.  Makes me think we need to think of more ways to capitalize on our kids strengths and when they are older make sure we match a job they are passionate about and also one that will build on their gifts.

Here's to others seeing ALL kids as competent!

 

The Autism Paradox


1. It's easy to recite an entire book but difficult to make up a story.


2. It's easy to line up toys but difficult to stay in line.


3. It makes perfect sense to climb on the sofa but little sense to sit on it.


4. Memorizing the Presidents in order - 10 minutes. Packing a school bag - 10 hours.


5. Family pictures on the wall are boring but that speck of dust next to it, now that's fascinating!


6. Talking about weather patterns - a piece of cake. Talking about my day - impossible.


7. Ability to focus on spinning objects - timeless. Ability to focus on homework - 3 seconds.


8. Being called by name - can't hear it. Some owl hooting in the distance - clear as a bell.


9. How to operate the remote control - zero instruction. How to button up pants - intensive instruction.


10. Navigating social rules - poorly skilled. Navigating from the back seat of the car - highly skilled.

Principal dd's curator insight, February 7, 2013 12:45 PM

What a perfect lead-in / intro to a staff meeting discussion around inclusion and integration with adaptations! Katia Reid puts it in perfect 'focus' from a perspective we can all appreciate:

 

"Sitting in a large lecture theatre for a presentation that I was attending voluntarily, I reached into my purse for my glasses and realized I had forgotten them at home. The lecture was two hours long and although my hearing is fine, being within a visual fog that made it impossible to see the lecturer was frustrating. After a while, I gave up trying to listen, and I took out my cell phone instead." 


How many of us experience this scenario on similar levels ... yet we know there are students in every classroom experiencing this same scenario. They're usually the easist to identify ... they 'self-identify' through inappropriate behaviour!
